116. Come, gracious Spirit

1 Come, gracious Spirit, heav'nly dove,
with light and comfort from above;
be thou our guardian, thou our guide,
o'er ev'ry thought and step preside.

2 The light of truth to us display,
and make us know and choose your way;
plant faith and love in ev'ry heart,
that we from God may ne'er depart.

3 Lead us to Christ, the living Way,
nor let us from our shepherd stray;
lead us to holiness, the road
that brings us to our home in God.

4 Lead us to heav'n, that we may share
fullness of joy for ever there;
lead us to God, the heart's true rest,
to dwell with him, for ever blest.
